Go ahead and throw your new iPhone about with reckless abandon because it appears that replacing a cracked screen will set you back less than a hundred bucks. Our favorite WTF store, Brando, has the "spare part for iPhone 3g" for $85. Another $10.50 grabs the iPhone Opening Tools Kit for, well, opening up your iPhone.
I’d be interested to see if the replacement screen would work with a first-gen iPhone or iPod Touch. I guess I’ll have to start being more careless with my Touch to find out. Goodbye, protective cases. Hello, putting my car keys and my iPod Touch in my back pocket every time I sit down. Krrrrrack.
